COURSE SYLLABUS

AY: 2007-2008, 2nd Semester

Course Title: PLANE TRIGONOMETRY

Course Code: Math_2

Pre-Requisite: Math_1

Credit: 3

Total Hours: 54 hours

Course Description:

This course focuses entirely on plane trigonometry. The six trigonometric functions which are defined in terms of ratios are used routinely in calculations made by surveyors and navigators. Trigonometric functions also have applications in the physical and life sciences.

Procedure using trigonometric tables and those using a calculator are included as needed to solve problems.

Triangle solution problems, trigonometric identities, and trigonometric equations require knowledge of elementary algebra.

Course Objectives:

At the end of the semester, the students should be able to:

1. define trigonometric functions

2. enumerate the application of trigonometry

3. evaluate trigonometric functions

4. graph trigonometric functions

5. solve equation involving trigonometric function

6. solve problems on the application of trigonometric functions to geometry
